Big Feet Covered?
Pity the film ran short, it would have been interesting to know if they managed to kit him out?

Great story cut short
This is only a portion of the original news reel. I would have given it five stars if the whole reel was included.

Test Patient Found!
We do not know the exact date of this drama, but we do know that between 1953 and 1957, patients at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston were injected with uranium as part of the Manhattan Project at the direction of the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC). To my knowledge, the effects of the "study" and whereabouts of its "volunteers" has never been disclosed - until now! As such, I must activate the highest level tickable radio button available herein, that is, five stars, and many kudos!

The film claims to be 1:06 long but it only runs for 22 secs and then stops short.
I'd like to rate this (it's funny), but I can't without knowing how it turns out. Oh the suspense!!
Can the poster please upload this again?

You know what they say about guys with big feet..
What do they say? We don't find out, as this story ends way before we find out. We DO find out the soldier has size 16 (!!) feet, and has to wear sandals? What does happen? Oh the suspense!

Newsreel story from San Fransisco CA army base the Presidio.
About private John Anno of NJ whose shoe size is 16 AAA.
The largest size the Army stocks is 15.
He is wearing sandals until new shoes can be acquired.
An announcer says he must get shoes in order to maintain army discipline.
We see his feet being measured with a tape by some sort of doctor.
Film seems to end abruptly before completion of story.
